Description: The Catawba materials in the ACLS collection consist of three items found in the "Catawba" section of the finding aid. There is one notebook by Morris Swadesh (item X1.2, "Catawba field notes") containing texts, vocabularies, grammatical notes, and a Catawba "letter to Speck". This also includes 2 pages of unidentified "Alaskan Eskimo" mixed in (probably Unaaliq). There are two Catawba lexicons: one by Amelia Susman (item X1.1), containing approximatetly 1,000 slips and organized by stems, based upon Frank Speck's "Catawba Texts" (1934); and another (item X1.3, "Catawba vocabulary") by an unidentified compiler (possibly Frank Siebert), also based on Speck and unpublished materials.
Collection: ACLS Collection (American Council of Learned Societies Committee on Native American Languages, American Philosophical Society) (Mss.497.3.B63c)
